Blackburn boss Mark Hughes has no intention of letting Tugay leave Ewood Park.
However, Rovers manager Hughes knows Tugay's value and has promised him games as he looks to keep his squad fresh.
"Tugay knows how we feel about him - we love him," said Hughes.
"He's at a stage where he will get a number of games. He knows that.
"There are very few players of his ilk so you can't afford to let them go."
